The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award


      Recently I was awarded the “Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award” from November Rain at Bloggit Write.  A big heart felt thank you for thinking of me!  I am honored! The time has come for me step up to the plate and fulfill the requirements and pass this lovely little award on to someone who doesn’t already have it and is equally worthy.  I must share 7 things about me and pass the award along so here goes nothing!




7 Things about Me…


1.  My first part time job was as a sound engineer.  I mixed the sound board and set the mikes for several productions that were held in the auditorium of my high school including the theatrical presentation of “Don Quixote”.  I also was the girl behind the scenes mixing the boards for every production that graced the stage during my time in high school from “Fiddler on the Roof” to “Damn Yankees”.  Because of this and the fact that I spent my youth running all over the countryside with my mom to Oak Ridge Boys concerts I was convinced I wanted to be a sound engineer when I grew up.  It was a burning desire that quickly flickered out when I discovered home was where my heart was.


         2.  I love to read.


         3.  I used to work in the lab at a company that makes diabetes test strips.  I spent 4-6 hours a day dipping test strips into vials of random blood and pee and recording my readings.  It was a pretty cool job.  I even got to wear a white lab coat and look all official.


          4.  I love cats and dogs.  


          5.  I attended the CMA award show in Nashville, Tennessee when I was 18 years old.  Lionel Richie performed that year and it was a thrill to get to rub elbows with all the stars and the music business elite at the post award show party at the Opryland Hotel afterwards.


           6.  I love to go camping!! Of course I do it in a very nice travel trailer.  I can’t imagine roughing it in a tent!! UGH!


  7.  When I was little I wanted to be an animator at Disney, marry Prince Charming, and live happily ever after in Cinderella’s castle in the heart of Disney World.  Ahhh, the lofty aspirations of a preschooler!  This last week I was tickled to redesign my website and create an avatar of me. It was so much fun!! I am living the dream. LOL


     That wasn’t too painful!  Now without further ado…here are the folks, in no particular order,  I think are irresistibly sweet and talented writers in their own right!  I absolutely love visiting their blogs and reading what they have to say and I am sure you will too!


1.   Kat at “My View through Kat Eyes”
2.   Tim at “I Never Wanted to Be a Fireman”
3.    Feathered Pen at “My Feathered Pen”
4.    Daphne at “My Distant Husband”
5.    Suzy at “Someday, Somewhere”
6.    Theresa at "Life in My Little Corner"


     Congratulations to each of you!  You are all irresistibly sweet bloggers and I look forward to  reading more of your work until next time when I give you another glimpse into the life of a trucker’s wife.

  2. Danneromero, that was about a million years ago! LOL It was fun. At the time you didn't run into to many females doing that job, not to mention all the heavy lifting possibly involved if I got a job on the road on tour with someone. That was another thing that kind of persuaded me that maybe I was better off at home. Thank you for stopping by to read all about me and congratulations again!! You rock!

    1. Theresa, you are very welcome!! My mom was staying at the Opryland Hotel at the time and someone was selling tickets in the lobby. Mom laid out the cash without batting an eyelash. She was in Nashville to visit me. Only after that did we get all excited and wondering "What will we wear??" I had a fancy dress that I had gotten for the Dean's reception for freshmen at the school mansion, so I was set. It was a once in a life time experience and I was thrilled to get to go!! Congratulations once again!

    1. KAT, you are very welcome! I enjoy reading what you write too! The CMA's were a lot of fun, but it was the after awards party at Opryland that really impressed!! So much yummy food and so many great stars! The Mighty Oaks Band who back up the Oak Ridge Boys who won the award for best band that year happened to be friends and I got to see the award up close and personal. Now that was cool!! Congratulations again!

    1. Suzy, you are very welcome!! I used to wish on a star when I was little about going to Disney World and meeting Mickey Mouse. I got to go when I was 4,5, and 18 and every single time was as magical as the time before. I hope to take my husband and kids there one day! That would be the ultimate! Congratulations again!!
